for china policy and what we can do for foreign policy in general. it will validator system, give us the resources we need. and if we do that, not only the energy, but were way ahead of technology the demographic savers. with the best university, r&d, entrepreneurial spirit and the political system. but we've got to get through this immediate polarization. best overall going to be thinking about next tuesday on the path of fiscal cliff, but the trifecta and stimulating sharpish growth, getting on top of our debt problem and investing in the future all at the same time. i think we can do it. if we can, there's no reason to talk about american decline. >> i want students, friends, faculty, we are going to put a mic in the center aisle if you can start thinking of questions, just line up at the night. i don't own how many will take. as your thinking a lot to ask your guests one of the questions about the future, which is many ways every administration is tested, not by the things they plan to do, but the things that happen they didn't expect, the surprises. the question for all of you i
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
administration to focus its foreign policy efforts on asia. former ambassador to iraq, chris hill said political gridlock is hurting u.s. foreign policy object is an asian policy is a good place to rebuild bipartisanship. the discussion is just under two hours. >> thank you all for being here this afternoon and welcome to gaston on georgetown company country university. we've kind for a special conversation. a conversation between top diplomats past and present, each of whom has played a significant role over the past two decades with representatives from the administration of george h.w. bush to the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offered their expertise and experience as they look back on their years of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. we offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school foreign service and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our country's most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to dr. dr. victor cha and director of asian studi
his foreign policy and so on. that's what john sununu didn't want people debating, in my view. i think he quite deliberately played that race card to change the thinking of people who may be in two minds about who to vote for, you know what, this is actually about a black man voting for a black man. >> if it was an intentional dismissal, using race in that way, it just heightens the level of sinisterness of such a comment and it belies in many ways the truth of who colin powell is. >> let's play a clip from president obama today. this is what he said about it. >> any suggestion that general powell would make such a profound statement in such an important election based on anything other than what he thought was what's going to be best for america i think doesn't make much sense. >> sununu issued a statement afterwards which i found fairly laughable. colin powell's a friend, i respect the endorsement decision he made. i do not doubt it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. piers morgan's question was whether colin powell should leave the party and i don't th
the effect of the deadly attack in benghazi because foreign policy before that attack was a clear advantage for the president, but the controversy and contradictory statements coming from the administration has hurt president obama that poll reflects it. jon: there are questions too about how this president is handling the economy. right now only 45% say they approve. 52% disapprove. in october of 2010 i guess, the numbers were slightly lower for the president. i'm sorry, in terms of the disapproval number. 61%. so it is getting better, but still he is not looking too good when it comes to his handling of the economy. >> no and that is the number one issue of this election. so the fact that it is so close and those numbers are so bad for the president, actually a good sign for the president because those numbers are not good. in 2009, president obama mocked republicans. said they're always trying to make this mess and give me the economy and then he took ownership. said, give it to me. i will own the economy. that is the big issue of this election and that is why republicans say at the last
? it is not unusual within the traditions of our country to have the challenger engage. we do that on foreign policy. they get briefings. governor romney has been included and offered to talk to the management infrastructure. if governor romney were to win, there would be briefings before he became president. it was not a political question. i think it was a fair question. i think what we saw was governor christie's desire to show everyone how strongly he is a political, which, as you said, makes him look political. >> having worked for a lot of politicians, i don't think we should always read into everyone's motives. of yisly, there is politics. at the end of the day, chris christie is is aware of it. his number one priority has to be to people of new jersey that he is working on this. having an event with mitt romney would seem very political. i think he had the right response. maybe he was a bit more confrontational than i would be. the substance of this is the right one. the fact that we have politicians reaching across the aisle is something we should separate and start looking at their motives
the essence of what i've done. i am upset that we did not get a chance to talk about foreign policy and national security that is very threatening. we talked about which we did not talk about how to improve our military and take care of our veterans, but that is my commitment to the country that i have had in 20 digit for 22 years in uniform, and a commitment not -- i have had for 22 years in uniform, and a commitment that i take seriously. >> thank you representative that is more focused on job creation, not headlines. my background is exactly what we need to put our country back on track. i will focus on protecting the promise to our seniors and strengthening the pillars of middle-class, including medicare and medicaid, and not constantly demonizing them. my opponent called 80 members of congress communists, voted to end medicare as we know it, voted to eliminate 10 million pell grants and supported legislation that would take away the woman's right to choose. "the palm beach post" even said he is everything that is wrong with congress. i'm a former republican. i was tired of the
a decent first of foreign policy. so this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him." now, if you call the guy you're endorsing the devil you know, that's one hell of an elbow! all right. worse than the devil
, as the president touts his foreign policy, lawmakers are questioning that, sending a letter to the president, and secretary of state, hillary clinton, demanding 18 what they knew of the attack on benghazi. and my guest says the president may want to put off bragging. explain. >>guest: well, it is almost incomprehensible and more than many can take that we have a domestic tragedy at the same time we have this horrible, horrible preventable national security tragedy. what we finding out now is that there will be more blame, so much blame to go around starting at the white house, when they knew it, what knew and who made the decision not to rescue our form c.i.a. operatives and our military. it is almost incomprehensible when we started to overthrow qadaffi a year ago, over a year ago, we had this exact discussion. it didn't take a crystal ball to tell you and tell your viewers this is exactly what the end result was going to be. we throw out a known quantity, a very, very bad guy, qaddafi, we understand that and we arm, as i said them, al qaeda, hamas, muslim brotherhood, and what do we do? we
for the rich. you're doing a more bellicose foreign policy in the middle east. that's exactly what george w. bush did. everything is the same. but even more right wing, in fact if i was obama campaign, i would run an ad like this. >> is mitt romney a newser? as governor of massachusetts the state was 47th in job creation. there are only 50 states. >> i worked at one company bain for 25 years. >> cenk: he drove companies into bankruptcy. >> harvest them at a significant profit. >> cenk: thousands lost jobs. it is not that mitt romney doesn't care about winning. it is that he isn't on your team. >> romney: corporations are people, my friend. >> cenk: like this guy. what he really cares about are his real friends. under bush, stock prices of favored companies went up while jobs for us went down. mitt romney, what is the difference between you and george w. bush? >> if you raise taxes on the so-called rich, you're really raising taxes on the job create os. >> stop this war on job creators. >> they're the same
foreign policy con edis edison. we said coned is in hopes to restore power by the majority of the weekend. it's not this weekend -- it is the weekend after! the weekend of the 10th and 19119 11th. it may be the majority of those 650,000 people do not have power through next week. and for some, they even say it will be the week after. i'm afraid real serious problems for the power supply and for a lot of new yorkers, that means no water and that also means no sanitation. let's make that perfectly clear because in new york you have to pump the water into your building and to the top of it in order to get the water to flow through. tyler, back to you. >> the yoordeals continue. >>> conedison and the utilities sector in fact today negative as they all struggle to bring back power. to clarify what simon said, they are extending the timelines for full restoration but they still maintain that they should be able to bring lower manhattan back by this saturday. so they are maintaining this weekend for lower manhattan, but in the suburbs and outside of manhattan, they are extending it to the follow
that the president is doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it and you actually maybe even step aside and i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which is to lay low. a grace period, i guess, and the president is going to be back on the campaign trail. mitt romney didn't even mention the name yesterday. perhaps he learned from his mistake, if you believe that they were a mistake, from the attack in benghazi. >> clearly i think the campaign thought he jumped in far too quickly in benghazi and that was a move they regretted. he was out yesterday in florida campaigning. there were attacks against barack obama's leadership style and reference to fema and the role of government in federal emergencies. but i think this quantifies -- i think it changes the race in the sense that it changes the tone of the race in the last few days and i think the president has managed --
in the aftermath. i would let mitt romney lay out the foreign policy for afghanistan. i got some proposal that's might end up with a better result i think we will get. we pull out. >> such as? >> these proposals are a little bit strategic and dangerous to talk about on public and national television. i will just say that, i expect there will be a civil war in afghanistan if we pulled out immediately, and there are some ways to bring that together that people can be represented in various governments and more effective fashion than they are now. president karzai has been handed a powerful constitution where he rules the whole country. a saint would have abused that power. karzai has abused that power. >> vilsack, time for a new constitution in afghanistan >> i think that we need to first of all, make sure everyone who has served there in this country, that we all recognize that they did everything that we asked them to do. in the end, they've been asked to help train police forces. much like our national guard. they've been asked to help train them so they can take care of their own country
and voting to try to overcome the late advantage of momentum. megyn: romney has a lead on foreign policy and national security, which i typically also been an area in which president obama was dominating. not only has not eroded, but he is 10 points behind romney in that issue. i would like to ask you, because rather than look at the numbers, advantageous to the democrats, and so it is in this race. he says that obama leads 62% to 32%. among the early voters in ohio. one in three ohio voters has are to cast their ballot. one third of the ohio electorate, romney has a lead among those who still plan to vote, but that is a big gap to make up. >> yes, it is, but it example with an example. the other thing is this. any given republican votes at a higher frequency than any given democrat on a per capita basis. that is especially true this year because of an and enthusiasm gap. that means that the president needs to do overwhelmingly well. he needs to use the advantage in terms of organization to drag as many democrats to the polls as he possibly can. if there's a election were just on electio
they can't run on the foreign policy record because it many shot through with lies and it's in collapse. the only thing they have left, their default position is to run these offensive ads. megyn: kirsten, your thoughts. >> the on one that is an obama ad is a lena dunham ad. i like her a lot. i think she is a great comedian. megyn: i was surprised the obama campaign usedder in this way for this ad. >> it's a very targeted message targeted towards like rall educated women. the kind of women who watch their show. it's in the humor of that generation it's sort of ironic and i don't understand the outcry over it. this idea that suddenly she mentioned he sex, what are we going to .. it's not that controversial. the michael moore ad is offensive. but the obama campaign has nothing to do with that. they would never put out an ad like that. megyn: move on is partnering with them. >> i don't think move on should be associated with it either buff it isn't the obama campaign. megyn: kirsten made a point that ronald reagan made a joke about losing his virginity. he said i used to be a democrat. he
cannot run from their record or positions. the last foreign policy debate, i was not sure whether governor romney was going to endorse president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. he is now putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. it always depends. i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be aware of the convertists. one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed wi
this country. you can choose a foreign policy that reckless and wrong or you can choose the kind of leadership that i provided, that's steady and strong. you can choose to turn back the clock 50 years for women and immigrants or in this election, you can stand up for that basic principle enshrined in our founding documents that all of us are created equal. black, white, hispanic, asian, native american, young, old, rich, poor, gay, straight, able, disabled, no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, you've got a place in america. you can make it here if you try. that's what we believe. new hampshire, we've been through tough times. but we've been through tough times before and we're tougher. we always come out on top. we always bounce back. because we pull together, because we look after one another. because we don't leave anybody behind. because when we succeed, we prop that door open and bring those who are following behind us. we pull them through. that's who we are. our destiny is not written for us. it's written by us. we don't go backward. we look
: sure. >> he also made an attempt at the same type of undecided voters. he tried to use foreign policy as his issue. did not work as well. his is more of an attack on mitt romney. let's take a look. >> i'm barak obama and i approve this message. >> wreckless, amateurish. that's when news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, the "new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> so negative. so negative. that's not what voters want to hear. the amazing thin is that barak obama attacks mitt romney on of all things, libya? the obama campaign has been the most negative campaign over the last three weeks of any campaign in modern history. compare and contrast that with 2008 when he was the most positive. it's one of the reasons why his favorability ratings have go
a meeting on foreign policy, and other items. after the meeting, ronald reagan turned to him and said, for the next 100 days of my presidency, that will be the last meeting we have on that. all we're going to focus on is the recovery and this economy. that's clearly what this president did not do. >> julian, there are people like roger altman they think no matter who is elected we'll be looking at a better economy in the next four years. you sound like you're more in that camp but i don't want to put words in your mouth. >> well, i think mitt romney is uniquely qualified to lead us through that, and i think president obama will do a better job than he's done so far, but he really hasn't had the training, i mean, and he has never been successful in getting really much accomplished, and i really believe mitt romney would be much better on that i think he's the man for this job right now, and i believe he's going to get it. >> i guess in terms of getting things accomplished for the obama campaign has pointed to things like health care, they've pointed to detroit to the turnaround and you
, abc,cbs, the national security media, foreign policy media has done a pretty good job of this. it's a question of is it going to affect the election in time or is it going to be something that sort of drips out more substantially after the election? >> gretchen: isn't that important, david? isn't it important for americans to know the answers before they vote for president of the united states? >> well, it is. but it's not realistic to know all the answers. >> gretchen: why? >> because there is a lot of players that have to be looked at, and frankly, as was mentioned, no administration is going to be anxious to try to be able to uncover all of this. >> gretchen: shouldn't that infuriate americans, that any administration wouldn't want to get answers out? >> i would be infuriated just by all of the statements made that have been patently untrue. jay carney said on september 14, we have no information that this is a planned attack. that's not true. susan rice said on september 16 that this was spontaneous. that was not true. and they knew it was not true at the time. so those are t
by saying oh, you can't politicize this tragedy, you can't politicize foreign policy, but the fact when you get ready to go to an election this kind of, of attack and how it is handled, that is politics. you're electing somebody who is, well, how they're going to handle this kind of thing. doesn't it deserve to be considered by the voting public? >> of course it does. and that is why it is such a shame that this is happened and that the media has been coconspirators in letting it happen. you have to ask yourself, you know, it's true, a plurality of americans do not believe that the president and the white house misled the american people about what happened in benghazi. but that is not the same as being about what happened in benghazi and they are not telling us about that and they are -- >> who cares what majority of americans think. they are not getting any information. >> that's why they think that. >> of course they think that. nobody is reporting on it. when they are reporting on it they're carrying water for the administration. >> i'm just upset as you are. eventually so much has come
's foreign policy. he said there's no obama doctrine that i know of. i don't know that anybody has enunciated a world view the way that henriy kissen jer did in hs day or even james baker. there's no great love there for the president of the united states. but clearly he has endorsed him. >> yes. and also he focused on climate change which i thought was interesting. >> right. >> it comes after this huge storm and there's a big fight going on right now. and the scientists are out there saying, listen, this is climate change these sort of huge storms we haven't seen the likes of before. this is the result of climate change. and this is clearly a major who believes that his city was hard hit as a result of climate change. and so, you know, again not surprising the timing is sort of interesting to me. but it does fit in with what's been going on in new york and that he spent so much time talking about climate change. and that was what he was actually criticizing mitt romney for was romney's -- what he sees as romney's flip-flop on things like coarbon emissions. >> obviously critically important i
by catherine herridge and jennifer griffin they get broken and come forward in foreign policy magazine. you expect the white house take this and comment on it. it's delay of game. you get in denials an not say why these people have an agenda. you have pundits saying it's political agenda. for the lawmakers they don't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run
